old, first of all obama now has a four year record, actually that romney should be focusing on and he should be talking completely about the economy. and if he wants to go back to some 4-year-old tape where obama said something and tried to convince americans that president obama is some sort of race monger. i think it would back fire. >> what if president obama and we believe he dual that leslie says you are trying to divide americans 47%. you don't believe they are worthy. it seems to me fairly powerful defense saying wait a minute. taking my remarks out of context. you said this about race. you said this about wealthy people. no, yes? is that a shield he should use? i don't think mitt romney should bring up anything with race. he should clarify 47% remark. i think because tonight is really about trying to get back some of that small lead that the president has and trying to close that gap in the polls that the president is leading by right now. that is what mitt romney needs to accomplish tonight with the people watching. those that are already going to vote for mitt romney and tho
the 2008 democratic convention. same state that president obama went on to win four years ago. it's going to be the first time that these two are going to share the same stage, and they're going to tackle domestic policy. that's going to happen for 90 minutes. of course, the stakes very high. especially for romney now. he is trailing in key states that could decide this election. cnn's candy crowley is saying that they're great expectations, even while both sides are trying to lower them. >> reporter: apparently romney supporter and republican governor chris christie didn't get the memo. >> wednesday night is the restart of this campaign, and i think you're going to see those numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> reporter: note to governor christie. no, no, no, no. sop for predebate chatter is to lower expectations for your guy by raising expectations for the other die guy. like this. >> president obama is a very -- he is a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage for many years. he is an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartis
back to first year of the obama administration, from an unknown source, if you will, in an early meeting that the president had with jewish leaders, at the white house back in 2009, that the president wanted to spwant ed to put some daylight between the u.s. and israel. he didn't mention israel was thrown under the bus, but he didn't back off at all in his insistence that the u.s./israeli relationship, specifically relationship between the president and the prime minister, was under strain. i will point out this, he's right on that, the relationship between netanyahu and president obama is under strain. but the u.s./israeli military to military relationship, intelligence to intelligence relationship, at least according to ehud barak and shimon peres, i interviewed both of them in july, they insist the relationship has never been better. the personal relationship between these two leaders, though, is not good. >> that is what romney has pointed out. up until now, and perhaps largely because of the operation that killed osama bin laden, it has been advantage obama when it comes to
the answer. first of all, for two years president obama cut support of u.s. assistance for democracy in civil society in egypt. so those who eventually went to tahrir square saw that the united states wasn't on their side. that was a mistake. there's a big difference between anticipating and leading versus not leading, reacting, cutting our traditional support for democracy. that's the record of president obama. that contributed it to the mess. >> you say he should have pushed mubarak out and done it differently or shouldn't have done it? >> ronald reagan once said to support the march of freedom, but we can't determine the pace. the people in the country determine the pace of the march of freedom. it's humorous to suggest we could do this. >> can you make an assertion but no answer. that seemed to happen in that exchan exchange. >> if anyone doubts foreign policy and who advises candidates doesn't matter, they have to watch that video. this is the stakes at hand. there's two ways to look at this, i think. on the policy side governor romney's critiques are wrong. the president has done a rema
reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a speech singled out vladimir putin as a basically a foe
obama promised to bring rerelief four years ago. >> gas prices are mostly an annoyance most americans they are a huge problem bordering on a crisis. here in indiana gas costs $3.60 a gallon. across the country gas costs more than at any time in almost 30 years. as the president i will work to solve this energy crisis once and for all. bill: that was april of 2008. adam house here streams live at a gas station in l.a. what is behind this surge, adam? >> well, bill, first of all you'd be hardpressed to find gas prices anywhere in los angeles under 4.50 a gallon. if you found some a lot of people would race there to get gas. on the west side of los angeles over into the valley in the last day most gas prices are 4.65, 470 and above. the reason is not just demand there is also the issue of several refineries that have gone off line in the last month or two. a big fire in a refinery up in the bay area back in august covered by fox. that caused a significant issue as well as a few others. you can't import gas from outside of california. they have more stringent standards, we have two standa
as to avoid being trapped by it. but the other point to make is that president obama has had several years. during those years the options that he took or the choices that he took narrowed the options that he has today so one of the reasons why governor romney's approach to iran looked similar in some respects to president obama's is because governor romney would have done things very differently two or three years ago. governor romney maids a critique in june of 2009. that's when to begin. >> woodruff: let me ask you very quickly, would governor romney, for example, be more willing to let israel go ahead and attack iran if it come to that? >> governor romney has made it clear can't dictate to israel how israel protects itself from what it considers to be an existential threat. governor romney hassles said that he would be israel's strongest supporter in the region. he's worried about president obama's decision to create daylight between the united states and israel. >> woodruff: let me turn then to michelle flournoy. how do you respond for the campaign? >> the iran case is a great example
was the barack obama i've been listening to now for four years. he sounded very much like himself. i don't think he was terribly bad. i think he has a very weak case. i think that the circumstances in the country present the challenging candidate with all kinds of opportunities. mitt romney was on his game and he took advantage of those opportunities. the president is saddled with weak circumstances and therefore a weak case. it is not surprising to me didn't argue it very well. the other thing is, despite his reputation as being this world class orator, maybe he is with a set piece speech but there is not a lot of evidence in the past he was a great debater. we put those thing together, i don't think this was a big a shock as president's supporters on the left feel. he is not 10 feet tall and has never been. bill: candidates square off october 16th week and a half from now, long island, new york, at hofstra university. patti ann: the political winds may be shifting. governor romney enjoying quite a post-debate bounce. going past president obama in the rasmussen tracking poll. 49-to obama's 47.
prefer they register democrats. >> of course. i work for the obama campaign. >> reporter: 20-year-old jonathan colone registered. >> i'm looking in the future. whatever they can do to make their four years count is what i really want. >> reporter: with so much at stake in florida there can be a darker side to voter registration. palm beach county's supervisor of elections susan booker discovered discrepancies. signatures that looked the same. addresses that didn't appear right on more than 100 voter registration forms. >> we just haven't ever experienced this kind of issue with the registration forms. so that's got us a little disconcerted. >> reporter: the company at the center of what is now a statewide investigation, strategic allied consulting, hired by the republican party to register voters, was fired. strategic insists the problem was with one individual and that it maintains rigorous quality control measures. back in ft. lauderdale, not a good day for jessinia and karen. only a handful of new registers. that hurts, they say. you see, neither one is a u.s. citizen. both are
about the election. >> the obama campaign, they remind me a little bit of a seven-year-old losing a checker game and instead of being frustrated at the outcome they sweep the board off the table. it's not rocket science to believe that the president was disappointeted d in the expectations that he has for himself. >> tonight the anticipation growing, about the one and only debate between the vice-presidential nominee. gas prices may be high in your hometown, but they just hit a record in one state, and keep climbing. could what's driving up the cost in california happen closer to you? and a driver plows right into a liquor store, whoa. imagine being one of the people inside. and watching that struck get away. ♪ >> i'm harris falkner, we begin tonight in florida, with the republican presidential nominee for president spending a third straight day in that state which is up for grabs. governor mitt romney at an earlily in port st. lucie and he has a major address on foreign policy tomorrow at the virginia military institute and then the governor making a promise about taxes. >> a
that to be a point of contention at the debated a week from tuesday, as well. the obama campaign saying the romney performance last wednesday was a performance. romney campaign saying the obama campaign is behaving like a seven-year-old kid playing checkers. he wipes the board off the table. >> gregg: reminds me of elementary school, liar, liar, pants on fire. we could go on and on. john roberts, thanks so much. >> air force one expected to touchdown in los angeles any moment. president heading to a private event followed by a campaign 30 days to victory concert at nokia theater in los angeles. it will be packed with celebrity supporters. president will make remarks along with actor and sinsel town george clooney and musical performances by many celebrities we'll get a live report a bit later on. >> heather: political battle breaking out over the number one issue this election season, jobs. on friday. the labor department reporting that the unemployment rate for september was right there, 7.8%. the obama campaign out to that go number to show that the recovery is picking up steam, but republicans
sanchez was part of history four years ago, urging latinos to help make barack obama president. it's different this time around. harder. >> some people are still very excited and others say, i don't know. well, i haven't made up my mind. >> reporter: less hype about the obama campaign this time, she says, and less hope about the candidate. >> it's a little bit harder because sometimes some of them say, well, i don't know who to vote for, these two evils. >> reporter: latinos were 13% of the vote in battleground colorado four years ago. and any dip in their support for the president or a drop in turnout could shift this classic swing state. >> this is one of his songs that's so moving and so powerful. >> reporter: evangelicals are to mitt romney what latinos are to barack obama. white evangelicals made up 23% of colorado's vote in 2008. >> think about life, think about liberty, think about character. and then cast your ballot. >> reporter: this pastor adds a plug to vote to every subd's sermon. >> the most surprising thing is the frustration of many of them with both candidates and
obama and now president obama did in the democrat primary four years ago as well as mitt romney had debates four years ago and also in this most recent primary. president obama does have the advantage of having done the one on one with john mccain four years ago. he went one on one with mccain. he did very well. most would say he beat john mccain. so i think -- i think the onerous is on president obama. >> the director of debates at southern illinois university wrote an op-ed for cnn and said both have strengths and weaknesses and this will be one of the most important presidential debates we've seen in history. here's how he outlines it. when you talk about romney's strength he says he's smooth, knowledge able, excellent first lines and tends to pivot. he says president obama, his strengths, he can be detached, he has an ability to focus and crystallize that's very strong on his reasoning. donna, do you see either one of these as being accurate here? do you think that there's some sort of opportunity, if you will for the president to attack on romney's strengths or is he pretty for
as all 43 previous presidents combined. and over 30 cents of every dollar obama spends is borrowed, much of it from countries like china. he's not just wasting money; he's borrowing it and then wasting it. we can't afford four more years. >> why won't romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because, according to experts, he'd have to raise taxes on the middle class, or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here, how can we ever trust him here? >> brown: meanwhile, on the fox news channel last night, romney reversed course on his remark that 47% of americans don't pay taxes and, in his words, are dependent on government, so he couldn't worry about them and their votes. >> in this case, i said something that's just completely wrong. and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about the 100% and that has been demonstrated throughout my life. this whole campaign is about the 100%. when i become president, it'll be about helping the 100%. >> brown: still, president obama was having none of it. >> from
that would focus on getting the economy going he instead spent his first two years fighting for obama care. >> i think you're going to hear more of mitt romney question the president's priorities and more of the president saying, hey, who was that mitt romney i debated the other night? not the real guy i know. the real highlight this upcoming week will be the vice presidential debate, the only showdown between vice president biden and congressman paul ryan and, of course, that will be moderated -- the next presidential debate, of course, will be moderated by our own candy crowley. >> and the vice presidential debate should be pretty interesting. i mean, biden is usually pretty good going on the attack. >> biden will definitely probably try to be the aggressor here to pick up where the president left off last week in denver, and i think paul ryan is known as a pretty good numbers man, and i think it should be a pretty interesting debate, randi. >> sure will. we'll be watching. paul steinhauser, thank you. >> thank you. >>> overnight three suspected terrorists arrived in new york after being
that the obama campaign knew they were confronting over the past year. it had to be all the outside republican money. the super pacs, 501 c 4s, flooding the airways and the haul of over $181 million, by the obama campaign and the dnc, it gives them the potential to almost go one-to-one parity against the romney campaign and all the republican outside groups. so this is all just about being able to be even on the tv ad wars with 30 days left in the presidential campaign. one thing worth noting on the billion dollar number, that's when you add the obama campaign and the dnc it comes to $946 million. that's how we're getting the billion figure. >> that's a staggering haul. that is an eye-popping total. paul ryan, he raised $2.8 million for the romney camp at one fundraiser yesterday i'm told. what do you know about the romney team's fundraising for september? >> we know that in addition to that ryan haul, they raised about $12 million in the 48-hour period after the debate. showing that they're online grassroots fundraising is also kicking in to high gear. both sides are going to have a tremendou
actually attacked us on 9/11. today, osama bin laden is no more. >>reporter: interesting it was four years ago that then young senator obama was facing the same questions governor romney is now about whether he had a fitness to be commander in chief. he was facing the questions not just from republicans in 2008 but from democrats and his own v.p. nominee biden who said before the 2008 election, at some point, he will be tested as a young commander in chief. they believe inside the white house he has passed that test. >>shepard: the attack on the consequence last left the president on the defensive. >> in doubt there is a vulnerability for the president on foreign policy because of what happened in benghazi. that is why mitt romney sees an opening. and our latest polling this month, it shows on the question of who do you trust more to handle foreign policy, the president is leading 52 percent to 41 percent. it was higher for him in september, at 54 percent trusting him more in september. a little bit of a shift in october. the bottom line, again, they feel confident in chicago and the campa
's the truth? romney does want to cut tax rates. that would reduce revenue by nearly $5 trillion over 10 years. he says he would offset that loss by eliminating loopholes and deductions but he has refused to say which ones leaving him open to attack by team obama. >> mitt romney's solution is he just decided there wasn't math involved in this problem. and that's absolutely crazy. >> reporter: while the president continues that fund-raising swing, mitt romney will deliberate blistering foreign policy speeches attacking the president on middle eastern policy. that is tomorrow. david? >> david kerley traveling with the romney campaign this weekend, david, thank you. >>> i want to bring in our senior washington editor rick klein tonight. let's gallup poll we showed. a tighter race already. a rolling average as we know and still reflects voters asked before the debate and still could be on the move and all eyes on the crucial battleground straights. in colorado where the debate was held, university of denver poll showing the president holding on to his lead in colorado and, rick, why are both campa
in 1988 who was president? ronald reagan. lloyd benson had been in the senate 17 years, dan quayle, 7 years, that was about gravitas and the senior statesman versus the young new guy upstart. this time it's different because barack obama was in his 40's when he became president and even though joe biden is three decades older than paul ryan, that issue is muted a little bit. >> clayton: interestingly in 2008. then candidate biden, vice-presidential nominee at the time had a walk a delicate balance with sarah palin. he had to be respectful of her on the stage and strong a lot of people thought it was a tie at theened of the debate wherever you stand on it want matter, but here is a clip from that, we'll get you to respond to that moment. >> you voted for the war and now you oppose the war, you're one who says, as so many politicians do, i was for it before i was against it or vice versa, americans are craving straight talk. hey, if you voted for it, tell us why you voted for it and you you also said that barack obama was not ready to be command ner chief and i know again you opposed th

. >> president obama is a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartisanly accepted strategy like this. >> we expect it all along that governor romney will have a good night, he's prepared more than any candidate in history and he's shown himself to be a very, very good debater through the years. >> reporter: since you're supporting romney, the candidate who is running behind, you are supporting him, right? then you also need to lower the stakes for wednesday's first of these presidential debates, like this. >> frankly, i can't remember the last time there was one of these comments that grabbed everybody's attention because frankly the candidates are too well prepared. they're well scripted. >> reporter: and like this. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. >> reporter: but definitely governor christie, definitely not like this. >> i'll tell you, bob, thursday morning, you're going to be scratching your heads and saying, wow, we have a barn burner for the n
response showed a tremendous lack of presidential character. >> michelle is a former obama administration top aide, currently advising obama's re-election campaign on national security issues, served three years as undersecretary of defense for policy. michelle, good to see you. the new ad that is out now, you know, everybody has on the job training here. we know that president obama, when he first came into office didn't have a lot of foreign policy experiences. can you cut mitt romney some slack on that first visit, or do you think that really indicates a lack of understand ogt world stage? >> well, his initial performance abroad certainly did not inspire confidence. the truth is beyond that he hasn't been able to articulate a clear vision as to where he would take this country. he talks a lot about criticizing the president, criticizing his policies, but when you actually look at what he says, there's -- he seems to either embrace the president's plan or where he differentiates himself, really goes way, way from the mainstream and takes us into some pretty uncertain territory. i think
and republicans who picked obama last time. in 2008, who did you vote for? >> obama. >> reporter: and this year? >> romney. >> reporter: valerie and robert herman voted obama in '08 but call themselves undecided now. >> frankly i still don't really know what i'm going to do. >> there are disappointments, disappointments about where he said he would be today and we're not there, and my general enthusiasm has waned for him. >> reporter: many voters here say they are feeling the pressure that their votes could swing the state. >> elections are always tense, but it just seems like more people are very distressed about the outcome of this one. >> i feel so privileged i think to be a hamilton county voter and to have that spotlight hon what we're doing. >> reporter: and local democrats tell me that their enthusiasm was slower to develop this year, but they think they have got it now. while republicans say they want to drive up as many votes as they can, not only to win the county but to offset some of the support the president has elsewhere in the state. the candidates are here, it seems, almost ever

of the year you said you expected president obama to be re-elected. do you still believe that? >> yes. yes. i really do. i think that he was maybe two scores up as i heard on "squawk box" this morning. maybe now it is only one. i still think in terms of looking at these battleground states and where he appears to have a competitive advantage, he's still ahead. >> you were extremely accurate in your overall call, at least as of this date, of how the market was going to perform. you said about 15% in 2012. that's about where we are. is now a good time to invest? and then what's going to happen in 2013. >> i would be much more cautious now. we divided our analysis of the market into two parts. there's the things people normally talk about, growth rates and earnings and the economy, but also the discount rate. the interest rate plus this other fear or uncertainty factor. the fed's actions did reduce the uncertainty factor. they reduced the liquidity that took some of that fear away. but it's not really transferring into growth. if you do the high school long division dividing risk into growth, i
